comparison between the supervised andunsupe1irised learning algorithm?

(b) What is the significance of transfer function? List the different types of transfer functions? If the inputto a single input neuron is 2.0, its weight' is 1.3 and .its bias is 3.0.,what is t~e 'output of the neuron if it has the
followingtrans~er ~nctio1].?' (i) Hatdlimif (ii) Linear

Q2) (a) Explain why a single-layer perceptron cannot solve the XOR problem. Use an Xl vs. ,Xl plot to show that a straight line cannot separate the XNOR states. List the several aspects to keep in mind when selecting an . appropriate' neural network structure. (b) Explain the major difference between a conventional (serial) computer and a neural network.

In the figure, qi: cil, q2 = the rates ofliquid flow,


; hI' h2 = the heights of fluid level, RI' Rz = the flow resistance, and AI, ~= the tank areas. , The following basic linear relationships are valid for this system,'namely,
q , h/r = rate of flow through orifice.

qn = (tank input rate of flow) - (tank output rate of flow)



net tank rate of flow.

(a) Develop.a neural m~tworkcontrol system that can effectively maintain theliqujd level heights in tanks 1 and 2. (b) Discuss th~ ~erf~~ance' of the ne~~~i~et\Vork'contr-~llerand :issues concerning fine tuning. Q5) In a water rig the control objective is'to adjust the water level in a tank after a step in the reference. The rig consists of a feed pump and a tank, and the tank has an outlet. (a) Assume first that the outlet is closed. As soon as the water reaches the setpoint level, the error becomes zero, and the. controller will stop the feed pump. (b) If there is overshoot, for example, if the feed pump reacts sluggishly,the controller should slow down the pump well before the water reaches the


(c) Ass,umenow that-the outlet IS open. .The controller must try and reach the setpoint and keep pumping to compensate for the water running out:

of the .outlet. A sustained control signal in steady state is necessary tc balance the outflow. Design a fuzzy logic_centrol for the above three problems using any (' the fuzzy P, PI, PD, Pill, PD+1 controller.
